JT vs SNP Match Preview

What will be worrying for the Jamaican team management is that Jamaica Tallawahs is showing no signs of staging a comeback. After registering a couple of victories from their first three games with the remaining third game going to no result, Jamaicans opened their season in style. But they have lost 5 games in a row now. The closest they were to a victory was against Knight Riders when they were chasing a score of 143 runs. But the failure to chase this easy target would have dented their confidence quite a bit.

Jamaicans have a batting line-up that runs deep with Chris Green coming in to bat in number 8 position. Yet, the Jamaicans have failed to post a big score on the board. They also have the services of all-rounders Fabien Allen and Imad Wasim in their lower order. But the consistent failures in their top order have hurt their batting progress in a big way. Tallawahs decided to bring in Jermaine Blackwood to support the middle order and he only proved that he is more of a test match batter than a limited over one.

The St Kitts and Nevis Patriots team managed to win their last game and have a good promising batting order at the moment. They can cause problems for the Jamaican bowlers. The Patriots have nothing to lose at the moment as they are already out of contention for a place in the playoffs. They have some big guns playing in their top order. On their day these batters can take the game away from the more established bowling attacks such as Jamaica Tallawahs. But it will not be an easy game for SKTNP as Jamaica have a good bowling attack.

Before their last game where they succeeded in winning the contest, Patriots had set a target of 220 runs while batting first against the team of Barbados Royals. This performance was registered after the collapse they suffered against Guyana where they were bundled up for a score of 88 runs. The in-form batter in this line-up is Andre Fletcher. Evin Lewis has unfortunately not done too well near the top. He is one of the more experienced T20 batters in the side. Patriots’ bowlers will have to pull up their socks as well.

Dream11 Prediction

Although Jamaica Tallawahs have had to endure a 5-game losing streak they still have a better record in the competition than Patriots. But SKTNP has succeeded in winning their last game in the league. There are very few dependable players in the ranks of these two teams. Although the Patriots have succeeded in winning the last game, their bowling attack is far from trustworthy. Jamaica boasts of a more effective bowling attack and they can put Patriots on the backfoot. So, we reckon Jamaica Tallawahs to win this contest.
